Star Trek The Next Generation boldly goes to Bridge Crew

To boldly go where no VR has gone before, Star Trek Bridge Crew is set to receive brand new missions starting May 22.

Fans of Star Trek: The Next Generation will be particularly happy that the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701-D is headed to Bridge Crew via the game’s first piece of DLC. Priced at £11.99, the DLC adds cloaked Romulan fleets and the notorious Borg to the Ongoing Missions mode, which has been bolstered with Patrol and Resistance missions.

While out on patrol, players will be able to free roam while receiving random objective requests and experience various encounters. Meanwhile Resistance mode pits you against the Borg. As if that isn’t enough, the DLC also introduces a new role to the bridge – Operations. This role is focused on crew management – deploying NPC crew members to various parts of the ship.

Whether you play in VR or with the traditional TV setup, Star Trek Bridge Crew is a lot of fun – and not just for Trekkies either.

 

 

Sam Fisher visits the Ghosts

How do you better the timed Ghost Recon Wildlands Predator event? I honestly didn’t think it was possible – but Ubisoft have gone and proved me wrong.

It might not be the news Splinter Cell fans were hoping for, but starting April 10 and as part of Operation 1, the Ghosts will be teaming up with Sam for a special free crossover event that can be played either solo or with up to three other players in four player co-op, which is set at night and in true Splinter Cell style – stealth is the name of the game.

“We are all super excited to bring such an iconic character as Sam Fisher into Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands,” said Nouredine Abboud, Senior Producer at Ubisoft. “Teaming up with Sam Fisher will require the Ghosts’ stealth, cleverness and tactics…we can’t wait to see the reactions of our players as they face this new challenge!”

It’s not just Sam that’s coming to Bolivia either, a whole host of unlockables can be yours, including Sam’s iconic goggles. The mission will remain part of the game but the rewards can only be earned if you beat the challenges by May 16.

Take a look at Assassin’s Creed Origins’ The Curse of the Pharaohs

From tomorrow, March 13, you can download a brand new adventure for Bayek in Assassin’s Creed Origins. The Curse of the Pharaohs is set four years after the climax of the main campaign, in the capital city of Thebes. A strange curse has befallen the region and Bayek is investigating the plague and what has caused it.

 

With a level cap boosted to 55, Bayek also has new crafting levels – with appropriate resources at his disposable – and new abilities. These will undoubtedly come in handy while exploring the secret tombs of the Valley of the Kings, and the temples of Karnak and Luxor.

The DLC is available to purchase separately or as part of the Season Pass.

 

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 next DLC is ‘Champion’ on Xbox One…

…well, it will save you a measly 10p if you pick up the Champions character pack on Xbox One rather than PlayStation 4. Priced at £1.59 and £1.69 respectively, the pack includes a host of new characters that push the total rooster of potential playable heroes/villains to over 200.

As the name suggests, the DLC includes characters from Marvel’s Champions series, which follows the lives of a group of teenage Super Heroes who believe they know better than their adult Avenger mentors, breaking away to form their own team and recruiting other disillusioned teenagers to their cause.

The DLC includes Amadeus Cho, Nova, Ironheart, Devil Dinosaur, Moon Girl, Viv, Wasp (Nadia Pym), and Hawkeye (Kate Bishop).

Gears of War 4 may update brings back Carmine

The May update for Gears of War 4 has dropped and Carmine has be reborn.

Maps

This month brings a brand-new map designed by The Coalition in Dawn, along with the first returning map from Gears of War 2 – Security!

Dawn

Gears 4 - Dawn Map

Set in a stunning Outsider village built around an abandoned mining colony, Dawn is a map defined by two defensive structures – the high ground of the bar, and the entrenched mine on the low side. Prepare for a new kind of fight centered around the vital Dropshot spawn, as it’s surrounded by both high and low flanks and features a risk-it-all one-way vault to secure the weapon.

Security

Gears 4 - Security Map

Fans have been asking for Security since the launch of Gears of War 4. The Coalition has worked extensively to bring this map up to modern graphical and gameplay standards, with improvements that incorporate Gears 4’s close-cover combat, Horde and proper support for respawn-based modes like TDM.

This new reimagined setting for Security takes you to a fight over a glorious decadent COG depository, with stacks of gold bars providing makeshift cover throughout the map. Defensive lasers bar access to key parts of the map, so prepare for a tough fight for the button that disables the lasers to give your team control over the flow of combat.

Multi-GPU Support Arrives on Windows 10

Multi-GPU support arrives with the May Update for our Windows 10 players. The Windows 10 team have been hard at work implementing support for users who use multiple graphics card setups, and now fans can take full advantage of their setup to really push the visuals of Gears of War 4.

Looking Forward

In Gears of War 2, the plucky Benjamin Carmine met his horrible end inside the Riftworm. This month, you’ll be able to find Benjamin Carmine back from the dead in one of the May Gear Packs as Zombie Ben Carmine – complete with his missing lower torso innards.

Gears 4 - Zombie Ben CarmineThere is a a bunch of other content that you can read about on Xbox Wire.
